Following a major reshuffle of around 40 Turkish Ambassadors, veteran career diplomat Ambassador Derya Kanbay has been posted to Nicosia.

His predecessor, senior economy bureaucrat Halil Ibrahim Akca, was posted to the island specifically at a time when the Turkish government was determined to implement austerity measures aimed at a dramatic reform of the Turkish Cypriot economy.

Kanbay, who takes up his duties on 14th August, and has served as Ambassador in Iraq and Slovenia in the past, was most recently working as the head of the Board of Auditors at Foreign Ministry headquarters.
